 Forum: Parents' Discussion   Topic: Anyone with advise on helping kids with motor dyspraxia cook

So my autism symptom/comorbidity salad did not include serious issues with coordination so I'm less prepared to pass on good tips to my son as he's learning to cook. I'm nothing special with my coordination but I never really struggled either. Watching my 11 year old try to help with cooking and wel...

Hard to say. I've always loved kids so I'd probably have been interested in having them on my own, but I did grow up in a culture that demanded I have them early no matter whether it made sense financially or career wise and that has had a cost on me. So I'd probably say I've had my kids when I did ...

Trying to find a sensory match as well as a theological match sounds like a lot of work, wish you well. I have switched denominations and found myself a good home but I can easily see how sensory issues might prevent someone from wanting to enter a lot of churches.

So for my entire life I've had a pretty significant need for deep pressure on my back. When I lived at home with my parents I probably managed to get either my parents or siblings to give me backrubs 3-4 times a day for example and even these days if I go to the dentist office and have a lead radiat...

I am on the spectrum, and I have (at least) one son on the spectrum as well. My 4 year old little boy has potty trained for peeing fairly smoothly, with one interruption when we accidentally started pushing to hard when it would have been good for him to go before going places. For some reason, he h...

Here are some general statistics from USU about their crime rates. I'm certain other universities probably provide similar documents. After you open the PDF documents you have to scroll down a few pages to get past the campus police giving an introduction...

You'd have to adapt it to your specific situation, but the "5 love languages" book (if I'm remembering the title) is pretty good at making you think about how you enjoy affection and how your spouse enjoys affection. Its possible if whatever channel of affection your spouse craves is something you m...

I think part of the complaint stems from a perception that such people are failing to master independent skills or are failing to pursue their degrees or goals in life as vigorously because they have parents to fallback on. Stereotypical complaint I think is the person who never graduates and has no...

I think you may be feeling a natural reaction to being uncertain if he truely means take anything you need and needing yourself to make sense reto yourself. Chances are there are some limitations to that that aren't stated and you feel a fairly high priority on making your actions make sense to your...

Whatever you think of Tea Party politics in general, I think Bachman could use keeping her mouth shut on this and in general should use a fact checker before she opens her mouth.

Sounds wonderful. I've noticed many people I tell either tend to react very well or to forget the jist of what I told them. Some people do go crazy on me, but by in large its not frequent.

My son is only about 9 months old, so my response reflects that. I don't say I really 'socialize' with him at all in the context you describe. I do care for him, protect him, entertain him, and assist him in exploring the world. I don't expect to ever really have a significant relationship with him ...

Awesome for you. A word of advice. If your bishop is like my bishop was they might avoid telling you if the answer is categorically no. I went for 6 or so months trying to go through some improvised therapy the ward came up with for me to try to give an opportunity for a miraculous healing that woul...

Mike the poet-- I'd be curious how that works out for you. Since I'm mild enough I can pass as normal if I'm trying hard enough I didn't expect it to be a problem for me either... but rules change and when I was going through was still pretty soon after the whole "raise the bar" thing which had left...

I've always had problems socializing but they have taken a unique turn since passing the age of 19. The new rule changes for missionary service that were announced a few years ago contained a medical component that most people overlook and having AS or autism automatically rules you out for missiona...

The blog Ballastexistenz appears to have disappeared sort of like it got stuck half way during a platform migration. Anybody know if it will be back up soon? I loved reading the things she posted there and the archives of older posts were really good too.
